From the deli to the kitchen this place is like visiting Italy. Antonio and Josephine prepare culinary delights for consumption on premises or 'to go'! ITS LIKE HOMEMADE ITALIAN, pasta, rabbe, sausage n peppers, pasta dishes, 'grinders' (subs) like the Tony Soprano...you can't miss.....EXCELLENT! Friendly atmosphere, great people, food and ...'baby it's authentic Italian'. Don't miss this one....'bravo.'

I just love their cooking. Reminds me of the lovely Italian home of my mothers best friend. Meatballs to die for. Eggplant, cold cuts, salads, sandwiches of all kinds. We love the friendly service. The best.

I always go in this deli directly from the airport and buy all my luncheon meats and amazingly prepared Italian foods for my week at the beach. Don't forget to pick up some bread and the Italian sausage as well.

This place is legit. Very good subs and a million other specialty items. They also make top notch pizza but it's not on the menu.

This place is always worth the trip. It has the best everything!!! We've never been disappointed in anything we've had here. Freshest products from start to finish. It makes dieting very difficult when we're in the area.

Yummy!! Italian Sub, Tom Hanks, Dean Martin, a perfect trio. Bread is fresh, meats are tasty, fresh lettuce, tomatoes, just enough condiments to keep it flavorful. Yes, we're making this our FAV!

Our first visit in 3 years, but they still make the best Italian sub I ever ate! This was our first visit to their bigger store and I'm glad its bigger and better. More room here to eat in. Very friendly staff made us feel right at home.

I had heard about this gem but did not have the pleasure of eating there until this week. Orders are placed at the counter with a charming young lady. The food is delivered to your table promptly. I have never had a more delicious sub. The roll was crisp and tasty and the eggpla at the volument hand breaded and... More
